Developing business network skills promoted at Cantillon seminar
SOME OF the leading figures from the world of business and economics visited Tralee to take part in the Cantillon 2014 seminar on economics and entrepreneurship at IT Tralee on Friday. The event, which is designed to be an open forum rather than a traditional conference, saw entrepreneurs, economists and business people from across Ireland gather to discuss new ideas and strategies for the future growth of business in Ireland and farther afield.
The Cantillon Forum is named in honour of Ballyheigue born pioneer and founding father of modern economics Richard Cantillon who is credited as being the first to define the role of an entrepreneur.
Organised by the Kerry County Enterprise Board this year's event was specifically focussed on how business people can best use and develop their network of contacts.
Speakers on the day included communications expert Terry Prone, economics author Antoin Murphy, Lorriane Scroope the founder of talent management technology company WizZki and social media consultant Noelle Leahy.
